“Dress design for Shabby Apple dresses”.

I have decided to submit 2 dresses to theDARE to DESIGN for SHABBY APPLE contest, I hope that is okay I never saw anything on their rules that said other wise. As many of you know I love ruffles, I wanted to make something a little more grown up for my 12 year old.  I love how this light weight fabric bounces as she walks, the neckline was her idea.  I liked the light soft feminine colors for spring  Go Check out SHABBY APPLE

“Dress design for Shabby Apple dresses”

I love Shabby apple dresses In fact this dress was inspired by Shabby Apple.
I made this one Pink, I think it could be sewn into a Variety of colors and fabric patterns Or even a solid fabric. I think the best part is the ruffled collar.
I have Used cotton Fabric here but I think I could have used a satin fabric.

Tip #1 Glitter: I mixed 3 types of glitter to achieve the perfect letters I also mixed Gold and orange to give it a little bit more fun texture to the clip board letters.

2. Dollar Tree crows and skeleton
3. Papers and craft supplies (Old Halloween decor torn apart :)
4. Martha Stewart Glitter (everything looks better in glitter)
5. $4 clock from Target
6. I put my girls in black outfits took their pictures  to decorate.
7. A couple of friends to come over and make one with me to keep me inspired.
I love Halloween, I love when the air is crisp, the smells of Pumpkin and Apple cider. How kids get to dress up into something else for the day. I am getting over excited to start working on Halloween Decorations.

I threw these dresses together for our family photo shoot.
I think its important when you are getting family pictures to consider the room you are putting these in,  I wanted these to match my living room so I pulled some of the colors I wanted to pull out into the outfits.

Greenhouse Garden Collection

This is my spring garden collection I made this for the girls for Easter. I love how they turned out. The green top is an Up-cycled tank top. I was sewing and looked over in my pile of used clothing and noticed that it matched perfectly.
